Behold The Humble Gondola
This bulkhead end gondola is not in too bad a shape compared to some of the era. There are the usual dents on the gunwales and the long side with all the braces provides a great "canvas" for the individual letters of the railroad name and even a herald. Today it would have been completely obliterated by modern "art".. Probably used in steel service Spotted in a B&M freight in Ayer.
